Running related bathroom stop story:
Running pet peeves:
Prices of races keep going up and I hate when races donít offer a womenís shirt. Thatís not fair. Women pay the same yet we are expected to take a menís shirt. Menís shirts are not attractive on women. I know itís more work to offer womenís shirts so I would be okay with a no shirt option with a lower price.

Iím certified in Auricular Acupuncture.

Swimming, biking, reading. Ive been a rave director for the Rock Canyon half, Atalanta womenís 5k and the Spring Runoff 10miler, 10k, 5k.
I absolutely love tacos and margaritas. Iím looking forward to learning new trails in the area.
